About the pilot project
In Calgary and Edmonton, the building stock accounts for 40 to 60 percent of greenhouse gas emissions. To achieve meaningful emissions reductions and address our current climate crisis, we need to reduce energy use in our building sector.Read the full announcement
Deep energy retrofits of our current building stock need to be done quickly and at scale. Traditional auditing processes can be time-consuming and expensive, making it difficult for building owners to retrofit their buildings.
To help identify energy efficiency improvements in commercial buildings faster, digitized approaches can be used to rapidly collect and present building information.
That is why Alberta Ecotrust Foundation, with support from the RBC Foundation’s Tech for Nature, and in partnership with software provider, Audette, launched our Accelerating Retrofits in Commercial Buildings pilot project in September 2021.
Get a digital, simplified, low-carbon retrofit plan and accompanying business case.
The large-scale energy efficiency improvements identified will be aggregated, allowing building owners to take advantage of alternative financing mechanisms and catalyze investment.
By participating in this pilot project, commercial building owners will be shown retrofit opportunities that will allow them to achieve emissions reductions, lower costs and improve building performance.
This pilot project is underway, and results will be posted later in 2022.
